Fit for a Queen
“Queensferry (the Passage of the Queen) derives its name from Margaret, Queen of Malcolm Canmore, a Princess celebrated for her charitable and beneficent virtues. She frequented the passage much, and was a great patroness of the place; hence the name by which it is now distinguished, certainly originated.”
